“Anomaly” 12

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 5:51 pm





John put out 11 issues of his newsletter, Anomaly, from 1969 to 1974.  He never copyrighted it or sold it; he used it mostly to collect and distribute fortean newspaper clippings to his mailing list.  (They have been posted at  The 12th issue was never issued, but he did paste it up.  It’s only four pages long; and contains a farewell note, two pages of clippings, and a list of his books.  I apologize for the yellowed newsprint and browning rubber cement, but I thought you’d like to see it as is.

  7. Hi Jerry — Yes, that’s why I switched to this theme. I’ll dig it out and re-scan it, so you can see it better. There’s a lot of material that I couldn’t post with the limitations of the old theme. Coming up are the NYFS Newsletters and much more. Cheers!
